TRADOS Inc. and Arbortext announced forming an alliance that closely ties the authoring and publishing processes with the entire globalization cycle. As a result, the alliance creates a global enterprise publishing solution that controls and streamlines the increasingly complex global content workflow. At the front of the lifecycle, where most costs are incurred, companies can create and manage content at both the micro-level of words, terms, phrases, and sentences and the macro-level of paragraphs, sections, or larger chunks. The new ability to preview documents ensures that content is translation-friendly and minimizes localization costs. At the end of the lifecycle, customers have more publishing options to deliver local content in any format, more rapidly covering “the last mile” to ensure that global information delivery is both timely and relevant.,
